Another Iowa City bar may find its liquor license in jeopardy.

The Iowa City Fire Department recommended Slippery Pete’s, 118 S. Dubuque St., be denied a liquor-license renewal following a failure to comply with the International Fire Code, according to a letter Fire Chief Andrew Rocca sent to city officials.

The letter stated the business owners failed to install an automatic sprinkler system required by fire codes one year after the bar gained alarm and sprinkler permits. Fire officials believe business owners had a significant amount of time to install the system.

The Iowa City City Council will discuss the bar’s liquor-license renewal at its Jan. 25 meeting.
